Creating Converstations That Change Minds.

We're a small team of individual specialists who have learned a lot over the last decade. We take pride in breaking the status quo.

We understand that thousands of other agencies and professionals are capable of doing the same caliber of work as ours. However, we challenge every one of them with a mission of truly prioritizing people and culture above everything else. Symposia celebrates a happy and healthy work-life balance and offers those we work with a refreshing agency experience.

That said, we're constantly learning new things and having conversations with people of different opinions and perspectives. Our goal is is to teach and share at every opportunity we can. We operate with a process that is lean and nimble, allowing us to collaborate with our clients partners quickly and effectively.

Our Beliefs

Break the Mold

We find joy when our partners reach new heights in their marketing goals. Accountability is something we take seriously, internally and externally. We believe in doing the right thing. We vow to always be honest, straightforward, and push limits to achieve high-quality results.

Prioritize People

We prioritize people, community, and the values we embody before anything else. We understand that life happens, and our work is not the most important thing at the end of the day. We echo this sentiment from within our organization outward. We combine our expertise with your success to grow together.

Win with Data

We make informed decisions and aren't afraid to push the limits when it feels necessary. As your marketing partner, we do the leg work so you don’t have to - keeping up with the latest trends and best practices as well as understanding the wide range of marketing tools and platforms. We invest in training, certifications, and knowledge to offer real value to everyone we work with.

10 years, 4 offices, and 1 pandemic later...

We've come to the conclusion that, despite how much we loved having a kick-ass physical space to call home base, we don't actually need one.

After two years of offering our team the ultimate flexibility of a completely remote workplace, we aren't going back!
